Equipped with a 9.8bhp, 125cc engine, the new TVS Rockz Step-thru could be unveiled at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo.
TVS Motor Company is working on a range of new scooters for the Indian market. The company is expected to unveil the production version of the Graphite and an all-new electric scooter at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo. Interestingly, TVS Rockz 125 Step-thru has been spotted testing on Indian roads. The test mule had no camouflage that suggests that the step-thru could eventually make its way to Indian market. A possible debut at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo can’t be ignored. The Rockz 125 will be the company’s first-ever modern step-thru for the Indian market. Also See – TVS Dazz scooter India Launch On Cards

TVS is yet to make an official announcement on the launch of this scooter. It is expected that the scooter could make its debut at the Auto Expo 2018, while the launch could take place in the second half of 2018.
The company will launch the Rockz as a modern step-thru in the country. We believe that this model could be priced between Rs 45,000 to 50,000.
This modern step-thru is powered by a 125cc single-cylinder engine that is capable of producing a maximum power output of 9.8bhp at 7,500rpm along with a peak torque of 9.8Nm at 5,500rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a dual-clutch system. As a reminder, TVS had showcased the Rockz at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. The model showcased was equipped with a 125cc DuraLife engine which is equipped with both auto and manual clutch.
It is expected that the TVS Rockz will be high on fuel efficiency. We believe that this model will deliver around 50kmpl in real-world conditions.
This step-thru rides on 17-inch alloy wheels shod with tubeless tyres. Featuring a scooter like design, this moped comes with 220mm front disc brake and drum brake at the rear. The Indonesian spec model comes with 200mm disc at the rear as well. For suspension duties, this two-wheeler gets telescopic shock absorbers at the front and gas-charged rear shock absorbers.
